The James’ were hosting a super 4th of July Party. “Please bring Brutus too”, the invitation said.
“Odd that they included our Black Lab there too but he would show up anyway,” Mitzi, their Yellow Lab was glad to see us and especially Brutus.
There was a large pen erected in the yard and it was full of yellow lab puppies. “My goodness they are darling. Mellie!” I said” Mitzi was nursing her brood when the last one popped up and we all laughed.
Looking at our dog, we all said in unison “Et tu Brute!”
“We named him Licorice.”
